Contreras v. – Personal Injury: Medical Malpractice- Hospital Injury
Hospitals and health centers are largely looked at as ‘places of healing’; yet, several hospitals fail to maintain a safe environment for treatment, or fail to properly diagnose individual’s due to a systemic error. As a personal injury law firm, we urge hospitals to follow their codes and stick to their oaths to administer diligent treatment towards individuals who need it.
If hospitals were to do this perfectly, they would successfully put us out of business.
Unfortunately, this is not the case and several hospitals are still engaging in unethical medical practices that stem from negligent administering of medicines, bad staffing, or just an overall lack of care for individuals.
In this particular case, our client had seen a hospital while they were feeling sick, and the hospital had determined that the best form of treatment was to keep our client on a ‘drip’. This failed miserably and led to the area where the drip was placed in her arm being infected—the infection then travelled to our client’s eye while they were under the care of the hospital, eventually necessitating an ejection surgery for our client’s eye.
Today, they are unable to see the same due to the lack of care exercised by the hospital.
